So this is a blog post I’m super excited to write. Amsterdam is the first place I’ve traveled to, since I arrived in Paris in late January. Where do I even begin?
Amsterdam is BEAUTIFUL. The city is charming, the canals are gorgeous, and I really enjoyed my time there. It was cold & rainy, but that didn’t bother me at all. I’m actually wanting to plan another weekend trip— when it’s a little warmer & their tulips start blooming.
So, my friends and I took a bus from Paris to Amsterdam. It wasn’t bad at all, I mean, it was the cheapest option! We stayed at a hostel called “The Train Lodge“, which was conveniently located right by the train station (Amsterdam Sloterdijk)
It is an old train, converted into a hostel. It was cheap- and did the job! I would recommend if you want to save $$$. There are three bunk beds to each cabin, and bigger rooms hold six bunk beds. The train lodge location is ONE STOP away from Amsterdam Centraal Station (where everything is) so it worked out great!
We went to the Moco Museum and saw a BANKSY x Salvator Dali exhibition (AMAZING). We went to Anne Frank’s house (of course), also to the Heineken Experience (well worth it!). We walked around for hours, and explored the city. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT.
Anne Frank’s House & museum.
I can’t stop saying how much I loved this city. It is worth visiting! The people spoke English, the city is super clean, and the people are nice. I can’t wait to go back! Until next time, Amsterdam.
